“There is no political agenda behind the day-long city cleaning campaign to be launched by Let’s Do It! Mysore,” clarified the organisation’s activist Prashanth here yesterday.

Reacting to an allegation made by former MLA M.K. Somashekar that the organisation’s campaign to clean up the city was being done with a political motive and the citizens and the MCC must not extend cooperation to it, Prashanth denied the allegation. He said that he spoke to Somashekar who confessed that he was misguided by some persons and later agreed to join the campaign.

Regarding the questions raised over the source of revenue for the organisation, Prashanth said that various organisations, institutions and individuals had voluntarily contributed their mite for the noble cause.

“A sum of Rs. 18 lakh has been collected through cheques and Rs. 65,000 in cash,” said Prashanth and added that the objective of Let’s Do It! Mysore, apart from the cleaning the city, is to spread awareness among the citizens about cleanliness and hygiene.

DCP Basavaraj Malagathi and others were present.
